I could not sleep tonight so I ended up exploring Bookmooch for a while. I signed up about a year ago, and then forgot about it really. I didn't think I'd ever use it as I just donate my old books to the library once a year. Sometime this month I decided to revisit the idea. Of course, I didn't remember my old login information, so I created a new account. Sometimes I wonder about all those useless, forgotten accounts out there. Are they like cyber trash?
Anyway, I decided to give Bookmooch another try. I suppose it's nice to know that a book is actually going to someone who wants to read it. And being able to send books all over the world is a fun thought too.
From working for libraries I know too often those donated books can get lost in the shuffle or even thrown away. Yeah, a dirty little secret of libraries. They would rather take the books, thank you, and throw them in the trash than to turn down a donation and seem ungrateful.
